  • I’ve run through the source code and cannot find any kind of command line generation code.. I think it’s just for Unit Tests.

    I really love this plugin (only started to look into it a few hours ago), but from what I can see, there are very few hooks to allow developers to integrate with it, and also doesn’t seem to be a nice/easy way to setup custom WP CLI commands for it.. That being said, if you wanted a CLI tool to generate the static site. Here’s a working (but crude) script:

    class SimplyStaticGenerator
        public function generate($args = [], $assoc_args = [])
            $done = $this->perform('start');
            while (!$done) {
                $done = $this->perform('continue');
        protected function perform($action)
            $archive_manager = new Simply_Static_Archive_Manager(new Simply_Static_Options(Simply_Static::SLUG));
            $state_name = $archive_manager->get_state_name();
            $done = $archive_manager->has_finished();
            \WP_CLI::success('In progress..');
            return $done;
    if (class_exists('WP_CLI')) {
        \WP_CLI::add_command('simply-static', '\SimplyStaticGenerator');

    I would backup before trying this out. I’ve probably missed something somewhere (as I say, only been looking at the plugin for a few hours, so I was “winging it” when I did this).

    @crgeary, how to exactly use that? put it i a new file in the plugin folder? Sorry, I had no chance looing into the wp-cli code and how to wp-cli-ify wp plugins, but know how to ise it and see that many plugins would be great to use with wp-cli, this one is an especially well suited candidate.

    wp-cli support is definitely needed for this plugin, would be very cool!

    Hi guys,

    As crgeary correctly pointed out, WP-CLI is currently only used for unit tests, and isn’t directly integrated with Simply Static. This is definitely something I plan to support eventually, but I don’t have an ETA for it yet.
